SEEDS partners with Energy Corp

March 11, 2012

SEEDS is incredibly excited to announce our partnership with Energy Corps, an initiative of the National Center for Appropriate Technology. Energy Corps was created “to address unmet community energy needs by promoting sustainable energy consumption and education, fostering community sustainability and helping to mitigate the effects of global climate change.” Pennsylvania is one of the five lucky states where Energy Corp has host sites. The others are Montana, Arkansas, Texas and Iowa.

Kayleigh Cornell, of Jessup, PA was sworn into service on Thursday, Ocotober 20, 2011 in Wilkes Barre, PA along with eight other PA Energy Corps AmeriCorps members. Kayleigh graduated from the University of Pittsburg with a degree in Environmental Studies, and will be working with SEEDS until the fall of 2012.

Kayleigh is currently running Wayne Businesses Conserve, the SEEDS GreenĀ Business recognition program. WBC helps businesses in Wayne and Pike counties save energy and money, while giving them the recognition they deserve. Kayleigh will be working closely with over 40 businesses, helping them as they fill out the WBC application and identify target energy savings actions.

In addition, Kayleigh will be working on The Energy Awareness Action Movement (TEAAM) and will be helping organize forums and other public education opportunities.

Welcome Kayleigh!
